Mei is here once again for some cool stuff and mostly ONE OK ROCK Live in Manila stories and Manila . I’ll be beginning the foreign story hunts on the next few days so you guys could have a little break from the Manila experience.
But for now, here are some more Philippine fans showing their love for ONE OK ROCK. For this update of Fans on ONE OK ROCK: The Interviews, we feature Reign!!!! Reign is 16 years old and you can check out her accounts at Wattpad (Hanyxxx) or in Youtube (search for Arthur Kirkland Bonnefoy). She is a part of the Philippines ONE OK ROCKers group and when i posted if she wanted to be a part of this, she agreed so here are her answers XD
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!!
Question 1: When did you first hear about ONE OK ROCK and how?
It was around 2013 or 2014 when my friend told me about OOR. She likes their songs and she made me listen to them. I didn’t entertained it at first because my religion forbids us from listening to rock bands, but when I heard their song “Be The Light”, I eventually became a big fan up until now. A bigger fan than my friend actually, because she became absorbed by another band.
Question 2: Favorite song?
My favorite song is “Be The Light” because it’s their first aong that touched my heart and also the reason why I became a fan.
Question 3: Proof of your ONE OK ROCK Love, the Merch
I don’t have any OOR merchandise (not even a poster nor a shirt) because I didn’t had a chance to buy one during the concert because of the heavy crowd sorrounding the merchendise store. And I can’t buy online due to lack of money.
Question 4: Favorite band member and why?
My favorite band member is their vocalist Takahiro Moriuchi-san. Because his voice is so powerful and his way of singing is full of feelings. It was like he’s expressing his self through singing.
Question 5: How did ONE OK ROCK change your life?
THEY DEFINITELY CHANGED MY LIFE! I started to have a different point of view in life because of thier songs. It’s like their songs opened my mind. I became more positive in deciding things for myself.
Question 6: Reactions when ONE OK ROCK will come to the Philippines on January? Your journey to the 19th? Expectations?
When Amuse Inc. Asia announced the concert, I jumped and screamed like crazy! I just can’t believe that I can finally have a chance to see OOR live! I begged my auntie to lend me money to buy a ticket when they opened the ticket sale. So we had an agreement that if I won the academic contest that I joined in last September 2015, then she’ll buy the ticket for me as a reward. So I did my best and I won. Then my auntie bought the ticket for me. Even though it was just a Lowerbox C ticket, I’m still happy because it’s better than nothing. Before the concert, I expected for it to be an amazing and an unforgettable night. And it really is! I hope it won’t be their first and last.
Question 7: How was the concert for you?
What can I say? I HAD THE MOST AMAZING NIGHT OF MY LIFE LAST JANUARY 19 2016! To see them perform live was a DREAM COME TRUE! 2 hours is not enough for them to showcase their Amazing talents!
Question 8: What is your message for ONE OK ROCK if they get the chance to see this interview?
“Please come back to our country! You guys are one of a kind! I still remember every details of your January 19 concert. Please continue changing people’s lives through making inspiring and motivating song and creating great music that every one of us wants to hear. Hope I could see you soon. smile emoticon ”
